Motorcyclists have a number of issues to keep an eye on when they are on the road. This is because they are less protected by their vehicle than other drivers. As a direct result of that, many motorcyclists who get into accidents can end up facing severe injuries due to being unprotected.
One type of injury is known as road burn, road rash, or skid injuries. Road rash is defined as a moderate or severe case of abrasion by Merriam-Webster’s dictionary. This type of injury occurs when a person’s body is dragged against the rough pavement of a road. The abrasive action usually causes a skid mark, or “burn”, on the person’s skin. This burn can vary in degrees of intensity. For example, some people may get a slight road burn beneath their clothing if they hit the ground at a fast speed.
